Ever since Jefferson Rescata was five years old, he had taken home animals that he came across on the streets. Although his dad would let him play with them, he would take them out and set them free when the boy was asleep at night. Jefferson would cry the next day and he would vow that when he grows up, he would keep all the animals that he wanted.
That’s exactly what he did.
The young boy who loved animals is now a grown-up and is doing what he loves the most. Rescuing and taking care of animals.
He now has his own shelter in his hometown in Manta, Ecuador. It recently houses almost a hundred dogs, several goats, pigs, horses, and a donkey. He rescues them and takes care of them personally.
One of his most heartbreaking rescues was when he saved a hairless pug that was abandoned by its owner.
Sammar used to be loved and adored by his owner. But when he developed a severe case of mange, this affection quickly faded away. The owner didn’t want to take care of him anymore and didn’t want to get him treatment. So he put him in a box and abandoned him in an isolated lot. Someone discovered the dog later on and called Jefferson for help.
When the rescuer arrived, he was immediately heartbroken. The dog’s condition was neglected for a long time that it had terribly worsened. The poor pooch looked like it was so much in pain. He could also tell that Sammar was extremely depressed about his situation.
He couldn’t understand why he was dumped.
Jefferson took the pug to his shelter and they immediately started giving him treatments. The pooch was given medicated baths regularly and some antibiotics. He was also given nutritious food. The rescuer gave the dog constant care and soon, his progress was visible.
it took a whole year before Sammar was completely cured. By then, he became a handsome dog with an amazing personality. Sammarwill be put up for adoption and a perfectly suitable family will be chosen for him.
